We’ve all seen the fashion guides that recommend certain styles of clothing depending on our body type. We also see how different hairstyles are recommended depending on our face, body, and even age. But knowing the best earring for your face shape is probably something you’ve never heard of – either did I until I started making jewelry!
Here’s a quick and simple guide to selecting the right type of earring style based on your facial shape.
Have fun experimenting with these new styles – you may be surprised.
Best Earring for Your Face Shape – Round
Long dangles work best and will elongate your face. Avoid large circular earrings, hoops and round studs.
Best Earring for Your Face Shape – Square
Round or oval earrings work to soften the face. Hoops are a great option too. Stay away from square or earrings with sharp edges as they will accentuate the squareness of your face.
Best Earring for Your Face Shape – Heart
Chandelier and teardrop earrings work to balance a wider forehead with a narrower chin. Look for earrings that highlight the cheekbones. These can be very flattering.
Best Earring for Your Face Shape – Long & Narrow
Short dangles and studs, along with medium hoops work well because they draw the eye across your face horizontally. Round earrings will widen your face, and make it look fuller.
Best Earring for Your Face Shape – Oval
Lucky you! You can pretty much wear any size or style of earring. What’s your favorite style?
